Lady Florence Fossoway was a noblewoman of House Fossoway during the reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen.[1]

History

She married young Martyn Tyrell, heir to Highgarden. Lady Florence was able and intelligent and took charge of the accounts of House Tyrell and increased the incomes of the house by over a third.[1]

When a new master of coin was needed by King Jaehaerys I, his Hand of the King, Septon Barth put forward Lord Martyn Tyrell's name, but in truth he desired the Lady Florence, who would be brought to court with her husband to perform the duties of the office. Although her husband officially sat on the small council and was given the title master of coin, it was, in fact, Lady Florence who was in charge of the treasury.[1]
